Bournemouth   1 - 0   Bradford

Bournemouth 1-0 Bradford

Bournemouth 1-0 Bradford

Brett Pitman hit his 22nd goal of the season to keep Bournemouth on course for automatic promotion to League One.

Pitman struck just before half-time when he was allowed time on the edge of the box to curl in a left-footed shot.

The Cherries had chances to seal the win but Pitman's point-blank shot was saved by Matt Glennon while Zesh Rehman cleared off the line from Liam Feeney.

In a rare Bradford attack, Gareth Evans latched on to Gavin Grant's through ball but his effort hit the crossbar.


Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told BBC Radio Solent:

"I thought we played really well. We were a little bit unlucky not to add to the tally but it was quite tight at the end.

"We passed it around really well on a difficult pitch and I thought it was an improved display.

"We're getting confident at home, the crowd are with us and hopefully they appreciated some of the football we played."
